What's in it?

Why do I like it?
I discovered that coconut butter and nut butter taste like a decadent treat when you eat them together. I had some of the toasted coconut/sunflower seed mixture in my fridge and decided to sprinkle some on top. It was really good! I discovered this during the 5 week period I was giving up processed foods and sugar. The texture of the crisp, juicy apple balance the stickiness of the butters. The toasted topping adds a bit of crunch.
Any recipe notes or tweaks?
I did try it with both almond and peanut butter and both tasted great. It would probably be great with a tart, green apple or any variety of apple you prefer.
